So often in life, defining success is difficult. Is it 10 times ROI? Is it a shiny new bank account after an acquisition or IPO? (No, ActiveState is not at that stage, I'm just dreaming of my own Central American island.) Well, those are nice when they happen, but not as personally fulfilling as seeing users excited enough about the software you write that they make the effort to tell others, or contribute something to it.
I'm always happy to announce the birth of a new version of Komodo! 4.4 Alpha 1 is up on our download servers. You can find out the details on our community site and see my announcement in the forums.

We are happy to announce that ActiveState now supports Oracle® Enterprise Linux - yup, all ActiveState products have been tested for compatibility. Oracle customers can leverage the our dev expertise and get full support for developing and deploying applications running on Oracle Enterprise Linux-based systems.
